Communication disorders are impairments in the ability to receive, send, process, and comprehend hearing, language, and/or speech. While the number of culturally diverse populations is growing in the United States, speech-language pathologists and audiologists lack information on serving these culturally diverse populations appropriately and effectively.

Cases on Communication Disorders in Culturally Diverse Populations is an essential research publication that provides culturally-competent hearing, language, and speech services and cases across age groups, communication disorders, and culturally diverse populations. These case studies offer a practical and detailed means for assisting professionals in providing culturally-appropriate speech, language, and hearing services. Highlighting various topics such as counseling, language learning, and genetics, this book is indispensable for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, counselors, administrators, academicians, researchers, practitioners, and students.
